The Bakken Blade

Posted on October 20, 2018 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Many of you know that I've been working on the fifth Zeke Traynor Mystery, "The Bakken Blade."  I'm about 60% done with the writing, and plan to publish it early next year.

It's an interesting story, centering on the oil industry in New Town, North Dakota, where Zeke is tracking down a killer.  Clive, Kimmy and Tracy Johnson are back, too!

If you haven't read The Crisp Poleward Sky (the 4th Zeke Traynor novel), you may want to grab a copy.  It's available on Amazon; here's the link:

Thanks!!  -Jeff Siebold

The Crisp Poleward Sky release

This is exciting!!  We're on track to have Zeke Traynor's next mystery available by the end of this month!  Both the Kindle version and the soft cover of The Crisp Poleward Sky will be available on shortly!

This story sees Zeke involved in uncovering a corrupt ICE agent while investigating human trafficking, following the trail of a violent Student Loan fraud ring for the Department of Education, and tracking an assassin with an eye on participants in the WITSEC program (U.S. witness protection).  Zeke works across the country again, between Phoenix, where he runs into deadly members of the MS-13 gang, to Boston where a determined killer makes repeated attempts on his life.

Called "a sensational story" by one reviewer, the excitement is captivating and the action is fast and plentiful!  I trust you'll enjoy the read!

Busy season!

Greetings!  I've been posting on Facebook (follow me at pretty regularly, my recommendations (books), reviews, new publications, interesting articles, etc.

But, sadly, I've neglected my Blog for a while.  So let me bring you up to date!

I'm in the final stage of editing my fourth Zeke Traynor Mystery.  I plan to have it done and to my editor this week.  Working title is "A Crisp Poleward Sky" (but that's subject to change).

In this book, Zeke tracks human traffickers bringing men and women into the United States from Central America.  After an attempt on his life at the Phoenix ICE Headquarters, Zeke must work around an egotistical Special Agent in Charge to apprehend an assassin who was hired to kill him. 

Additionally, Zeke and Clive are hired to investigate Student Loan thefts with ties to the mob.  They start in Cambridge, following the money to unethical students, crooked academics, mobsters, and ultimately to the power elite behind the scenes of this multi-million dollar swindle.

In between the action, Zeke continues his long-distance relationship with Tracy Johnson, the Secret Service Agent he met in Atlanta.

I've also polished up my favorite Short Story, "The Adventurer" and have a new cover to go with it.  I'll be offering it free in electronic format to all of you soon!!  Be sure you're on my e-mail list...I'm announcing it's availability via e-mail.

Hope everyone is having a great winter!  Keep reading...

Trawler weekend

We just got back from three days aboard a 35 foot trawler named "Bad Idea."  It was actually a good idea!

Plenty of space for the two of us...  It was a "tiny house" experience!

And it's done!
